Rain Gauge setup

Ok, I received my rain gauge today as well as my counter board. The mod is really easy, so I’m off to the races.

I have one question on wiring setup (having had problems with my non-CAT5 wiring). I bought the Lacrosse unit. They supply a 30 foot wire that is intended to go back to the display unit. My initial plan was to connect the counter board at the device source, but then I thought with the nice display unit, maybe I should use both the standard display unit and my WD display. Is it ok to use the 30 foot wire and mount the counter board inside at the end of the 30 feet? I could convince myself that the CAT5 run would be less since I could locate the counter board closer to the PC.

Any thoughts?

sound like a good idea to me :slight_smile:
